William Lloyd Garrison wrote his speech on the train; he was exhausted upon his arrival. He was met by Oliver Johnson. The weather was rainy, foggy, and a danger to ferry boats. Nevertheless, there was a substantial audience at the Tabernacle. The New York Times printed Garrison's address the next morning. Last night, Garrison lectured in Jersey City. The hall was crowded with men; there was continual applause. Garrison is now with George W. Benson and family. Tonight, he will go with the Gibbonses to see "spiritual manifestations."
